U2 - OCTOBER : OFFICIAL U2 ALBUM ON 180 GRAM CREAM VINYL WITH 16 PAGE BOOKLET WITH LYRICS
In February 1981 during their Boy Tour, U2 began to write new material. ("Fire" had already been recorded at Compass Studios in the Bahamas while U2 took a break from the Boy Tour.) They wrote October during an extended soundcheck at First Avenue in Minneapolis. In March, on an otherwise successful American leg of the tour, the briefcase of lead vocalist Bono containing in-progress lyrics and musical ideas was lost backstage during a performance at a nightclub in Portland, Oregon. This forced Bono to quickly improvise lyrics.
Bono said of the recording process of October, "I remember the pressure it was made under, I remember writing lyrics on the microphone, and at £50 an hour, that's quite a pressure. Lillywhite was pacing up and down the studio... he coped really well. And the ironic thing about October is that there's a sort of peace about the album, even though it was recorded under that pressure.
This is an essential album for U2 fans. We have a tiny number so you'd better move fast.
